28 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

My opening repertoire: 1. e4 as white, 1. e4 e5 and 1. d4 d5 as black.

Favorite player is Magnus Carlsen.

dumbgai: The conqueror of Carlsen is unable to conquer a 2384 rated IM.

dumbgai: Not sure about during a game, but luck can definitely make a difference in a close tournament, especially if there are tiebreaks involved. Sometimes when two players tie for first place in a big Swiss open, the tiebreaks come down to how well the scrubs they each beat in the early ...
   Feb-23-15 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Tomashevsky, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: Very interesting endgame. MVL misplayed the middlegame, leading to a situation where he was forced to sacrifice material. I would have preferred playing Nc3 first before d4.

dumbgai: Funny that Aronian wins the blitz, Anand wins the classical, and Kramnik wins the rapid...yet the overall winner of the tournament is none of the above.

dumbgai: <The influence of seconds is exaggerated, seemingly coming from the idea that opening preparation is the key to winning at the top level.> Kramnik openly admitted that Topalov had the better opening preparation in their match. But Kramnik ended up outplaying him once the ...
   Feb-06-15 Anand vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: Poor Anand, loses to Carlsen when he tries to play solidly, and also loses to Carlsen when he tries to attack.
   Feb-05-15 Tradewise Gibraltar (2015) (replies)
dumbgai: The knock-out will be won by another player with a rating in the low-2500s, who will then lose the subsequent match in fewer than 10 games. Yawn.
   Feb-05-15 Wei Yi vs A Pichot, 2015 (replies)
dumbgai: The true U16 #1 wipes the floor with the official U16 champion.
   Feb-05-15 Alan Pichot (replies)
dumbgai: 0/4 against GMs, 5.5/6 against a bunch of weakies. Clearly nowhere near the class of Wei Yi, who would have mopped the floor with that field if he had bothered with the U16 world championship.
